Nexus 7 Takes on Its Competitors in Comparison Table


The new Nexus 7 Tablet has got some killer hardware coupled with a respectable software, i.e. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is already receiving positive reviews.

While its main competitors will be either Amazon Kindle Fire or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, we think that it has enough skills to take on even the best in tablet business.

Does it succeed? let’s find out:

*some versions of this tablet support voice and video calls as well

I’ll mention it again that Ipad 3 and Transformer Prime aren’t Google Nexus 7’s main competitors, but still thanks to its great hardware, it can compete with those too in some, if not all categories.

  • Azi

    is Google N7 support voice and video calling over internet?

    • Shahid Saleem

      Yes, why not? Use Google Talk or Skype.

  • I purchased China android tablet with android 2.2 and i have been using it for a month and its just 8000 with an attached key board as well i would say its superb i enjoy reading PDF books when no electricity …..i think Chinese android tablets are cheaper and also in good quality
    some features of my tablet are

    CPU: VIA 8650 Dual core 800MHZ +300DSP
    OS: Google Android 2.2
    RAM: 256MB
    Storage: 4GB

    • Azi

    • Shahid Saleem

      2.2? why stay forever outdated?

    • Nanna Rahi

      and battery time ?

      • Asad

        Bro ,

        there is alway difference like

        HTC Wildfire and Qmobile soap both are touch but there is big difference

        i took the demo of chinese tablet but experience was not good main diference of touch

        8000, do not have capacitive touch it is like qmobile touch

  • I don’t like no external card option. Google is locking down the device this way.
    PS: Nokia has accused Asus violating its Wifi patents in Nexus 7. Bah…

  • Though as amazing as it may sound Google Nexus may have tough competition beating iPad. One, because its from Apple! :) Two, there are reports floating around that Apple is building iPad mini which will hit the market around October, before the holiday season in the US. This iPad mini is positioned to challenge Google Nexus Tab and Microsoft Surface Tab, and even Amazon Kindle Tab. Read the details here:
